1) let Darwin take its course and weed out those who can’t keep their finger off the trigger.
2) it’s not like Blackhawk is known for producing quality holsters to begin with. There’s a reason why Serpas are prohibited from a lot of agencies & training academies.

Every safety is a mechanical device that is prone to failure. Don’t touch the trigger if you’re not willing to fire. It’s that simple. If you need a little device to remind you of that then carrying a pistol is not for you.

I did. I was quoting a line from the movie Black Hawk Down, implying that if you keep your finger off the trigger it's almost impossible for any firearm to discharge. I apologize if the reference was too esoteric for you.

Not a huge surprise. Though the article/s are truly short on details.. . .nitty gritty details.

I've had folks contact me about all sorts of things happening via their training programs. Some guys really train hard and those guys can sometimes cause all sorts of failures or *surprises* to happen; mags releasing, holsters being ripped away from their body, and so on.
No one, not one has ever said he pulled the trigger because of my holster.

But I have had some real weiners too, who are truly just too dumb to carry every-day, or ever.

It would be more newsworthy if they produced a good holster.

Many of us remember when decent holsters were practically non-existent. I spent many, many days running an MP5 with a home made surgical tubing sling. Ah, back in the day.

Or a GP 2 quart strap as a XM177 over the shoulder sling ?

I remember guys taping all sorts of lights to their A2's before MOUT McKenna, LOL! There's a good video on 'Forgotten Weapons' of Vickers' CAR/XM-XXX that went into Modelo...SCUBA Light attached. How times have changed (for the better!)

Yep, remember 100 mile an hour taping mini mag lights onto our A2s in the 18C course for one raid we did in the FTX. Lol

And wearing flak vest instead of body armor.

And being High Speed cause we had goretex, poly p, and Chippewas.

And I remember bunch of us going out during the Q Course and buying surgical tubes, then cutting holes in the caps of our two quarts and making “pre cAmel backs” (somebody took that idea and capitalized it and is now a multi millionaire!).

My agency forbids any Blackhawk holsters as well as Uncle Mike's and Fobus.

I'm on a shooting course in Springfield, VA this week that finished up this morning. I ran litepath's slim profile pancake all week when shooting the Glock 19M. There is not a finer holster on the market than his. I was worried it wouldn't fit the the 19M since it was made for a Gen 3...but it fit perfectly. It also held the G26 quite nicely too.
